Maybe Final Hours #2 is being scheduled as the beginning of a final 'countdown' to release promotion, so they can't start before a certain time.

Also, I don't think Meagan is in Tokyo, but maybe her plans have been caught up with the gaming event there this weekend. It finishes tomorrow, so she can, hopefully get back to stuff like podcasts before Eurogamer (which she appears to have plans for).

Karl definitely won't be about at conventions this present time with his wife due any day now. :p

Spong 23-09-12 00:29

His other half is having a baby soon? Is it going to be a Karl or Karlette? :p
If it's a girl, they should poke her in the eye and call her Sam. If it's a boy, they should give him a tea tray and call him Winston :ohn:

Tonyrobinson 23-09-12 01:55

It is a little girl I believe. :p

He does indeed due this week if the calculations add up as he said his wife was due in September. :)

Nah Meagan is still in SF, preparing her cosplay stuffs she about to debut in October(probably NYCC).

Tonyrobinson 23-09-12 12:43

I think it is basically now just podcasts and Final Hours up until the New Year now. They seem to have the oddest marketing I have ever seen. Hope this doesn't mean that the game is bad and they aren't showing it for a reason. :o

Unfortunatelly, this is true.

Tonyrobinson 23-09-12 12:54

I mean to be working on a game for three or four years you would have thought they had a marketing plan in place or more to show. I know with the delay things got messed up but now it seems like they are doing things last minute.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had scrapped things and added new stuff half way into the original build. Last time something like this happened we had a delay. It isn't even about being a restless fan anymore it is all down to their marketing. They say they have a strict marketing campaign in place but if that is true how come so many things have been cancelled like showing hubs, combats and their big plans for Tokyo.

:o

I know what you mean but making new builds for new shows takes time from the game itself, remember when at comic con karl asked the team to remove the journals and the other items from the hunting demo? This is why they have been showing the same demo over and over.

Oh, looks like I missed something. I mean, what journals he asked them to remove? And what other items?

I think karl mentioned that in the comic con panel when a fan asked about the extra stuff we would encounter in the game. I think the person discovered a letter or a journal from an explorer who lived on the island I think.

The point is that CD had to waste time on the demo to modify it, time that could have been used on the game instead.

OK, and after the person asked about the things, Karl asked the team to remove them, so the players at GamesCom won't find them, right?

I think it was before comic con but maybe crystal couldn't remove all of them from the demo in time for the show.

just*raidin*tomb 23-09-12 15:18

Comic Con was the first time it was playable so it was during comic con that the question of collectibles was brought and someone found one. Whether it was removed or not, I dunno. But if it was removed, it was removed after comic con.

This reminds me of the carving the tree stump Lara's father left for Natla getting left behind in the TRU Thailand demo. I guess the story is so infused with the gameplay it's harder to separate out like a demo for an AC or a shooter game to show off the mechanics.

Is that the mid-air direction change at 0:05?

I think so, but I don't see it's point, I do like it though, because it adds realism and reminds me of classic Tomb Raiders.

Lukass 23-09-12 16:17

Didn't they say that ledges are not sucking Lara towards them, this time? Really? And what is it at 5:19-5:20?

The magnet grab from Underworld I reckon, but to be fair it looks more organic this time around.

Looked like she jumped towards it to me? I do like the way the platforming looks, but I still think they have some element of magnetism. Hopefully not as bad as Underworld.

Only TR lover 23-09-12 16:36

Didn't somebody also said that Lara doesn't grab the ledge automatically when you fall from it?! I've red it a couple of times... What's that on 06:07 than?

Yes, she confirmed this a while ago.
But I'm kind of worried about that threat. :(

LOL, it's like she got sucked into the platform. :p It almost looks a bit buggy, even.
